      Manufacturer's Description

      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q represents the pinnacle of gaming displays, seamlessly combining the latest technologies and design touches that gamers demand.

      This 27-inch WQHD 2560 × 1440 gaming monitor packs in nearly every feature a gamer could ask for. An incredible 144Hz refresh rate and a rapid response time of 1ms eliminate lag and motion blur, while an exclusive Turbo key allows you to select refresh rates of 60Hz, 120Hz or 144Hz with just one press. The ROG SWIFT contains integrated NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology to synchronize the display's refresh rate to the GPU. This technology eliminates screen tearing, while minimizing display stutter and input lag to give you the smoothest, fastest and most breathtaking gaming visuals imaginable. Connectivity is simple, yet robust, with a single DisplayPort 1.2 port to enable NVIDIA®G-SYNC™ and dual USB 3.0 ports for convenience.

      ASUS-exclusive GamePlus Technology enhances your gaming experience further by providing you with crosshair overlays for FPS games and multiple in-game timers for RTS/MOBA games.

      The ROG Swift has a super-narrow 6mm bezel that begs this monitor to be used in multi-display gaming set-ups. With VESA wall mount capability and an ergonomic stand designed with full tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustments, the ROG SWIFT is ready for gamers of all shapes and sizes to game comfortably for hours on end.



      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q represents the next generation in gaming displays. This WQHD 2560 x 1440 monitor delivers four times the resolution of 720p, with 109 pixels per inch or 109 RGB matrices per inch. This gives you the benefits of greater image detail and up to 77% more onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. These minor details add up to give you a major in-game advantage.


      Unlock the highest frame rates available, decimate lag and say goodbye to motion blur to gain the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy and sports titles. With twice the frame rate of standard LCDs, the ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor encourages you to never blink again.

      Fast Frame Rates
      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor delivers refresh rates of up to 144Hz to deliver the smoothest possible gameplay, even in graphically-intensive fast-paced action sequences.

      Minimal Motion Blur
      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor minimizes motion blur to display more natural movement, making it ideal for first person shooters or real-time strategy games.

      Incredible 1ms Rapid Response Time
      Response time and ultra-smooth gameplay are the hallmarks of a true gaming monitor. With a 1ms rapid response time – the fastest available – the ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor eliminates smearing, tearing and motion blur, allowing you to quickly react to your game.


      ASUS-exclusive 5-Way OSD Navigation Key
      The intuitive 5-way navigation key allows you to select OSD settings with just a flick. Switching menu settings have never been so easy.

      ASUS-exclusive Refresh Rate Turbo Key
      The ROG SWIFT features a dedicated hotkey to toggle refresh rate on-the-fly without needing to access the graphic driver control panel. Quickly select from 60, 120, or 144Hz refresh rates and go back to gaming.

      Keeping It Cool with a Smart Air Vent Design
      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor is designed for marathon gaming sessions. Its smart air vent design aids heat dissipation to keep things cool for extended periods of time.

      Awesome LED Light-in-Motion Effects
      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor comes with a mysterious and intricately-patterned base that can illuminate with an LED Light-in-Motion feature.


      ASUS-exclusive GamePlus Technology
      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor features the ASUS GamePlus hotkey with crosshair overlay and timer functions. Select from four different crosshairs to suit your gaming environment, and keep track of spawn and build times with the on-screen timer that can be positioned anywhere along the left-hand edge of the display.


      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor includes DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output and dual USB 3.0 ports for convenient pass through connectivity. A cable management design feature found on the back of the monitor allows you to organize and hide your cables to keep your gaming area tidy.


      The ROG SWIFT PG278Q Gaming Monitor is specially designed for long marathon gaming sessions. Its slim profile and super-narrow 6mm bezel makes it perfect for almost seamless multi-display setups. The ROG SWIFT also has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position. It can also be VESA wall-mounted.
